Infilling The Harbour

Posted on Sat, Jul 10, 2010 at 7:42 PM

OK. Who authorized this? When were the public consultations?

There are at least three locations in the harbour where land has been created in the harbour for greedy housing projects.

This is Halifax. We have a harbour. Not much else. Why in God's name are we letting people fill it in? I thought that up to six feet from the high tide line was public land. I also suspect a contamination/remediation cover-up is underway in Dartmouth Cove. Just watch... Tuft's cove will be next - but remember the bridges?

Go look at the harbour and basin at six am on a calm day. Put yourself in a canoe in your mind. Now try to imagine relacing just one ounce of that water with fill.

I don't think they can just do this. —Native Spirit
